No matter where you're working from, you’ve got to have a comfortable work space, complete with the core essentials that help you focus, achieve, and crush your workday goals.
What are those essentials? They’re different for everyone, of course. We’ve outlined our top 10 below, but we want to hear about *yours* — read on to learn how you can win a free Essentials Gift Box complete with Beats Solo3 Headphones just by telling us about your favorite workday essentials.
Yeah, we wouldn’t even think about starting the day without our morning java. It’s how we kickstart our brains (and wake them up again after lunch).
In a hurry? Don’t skip breakfast. A healthy, protein-rich breakfast is the fuel you need to light your fire. Pass the avocado toast, please!
Mobile devices like your cell phone and tablet help you stay productive wherever you are, which is essential in a world where every second counts. Just don’t forget your chargers!
Great news: Not only does music help drown out an overzealous co-worker or two, evidence also suggests that jamming on tunes at work can make you more productive. It’s science!
Check out our favorite Spotify playlist to jam out to:
Now about those overzealous co-workers… a great pair of headphones is a polite but effective way to give them the hand (enter to win a pair right now!) “Don’t bother me — I’m working.”
Granola bars, mixed nuts, minty gum… You want something that’ll give you a little pick-me-up without overtaking your desk or leaving crumbs. By the way, have you tried Graze yet?
Starting your day with a list of goals is how you get on the path to achieving them. Just jot down a few things you’d like to accomplish; then feel the satisfaction when you cross them off once complete.
We all know it’s important to stay hydrated, but we also think it’s important to cut back on waste. You can accomplish both by using an Earth-friendly water bottle. There are oodles of cool ones out there these days — a pattern for every passion — but we think these bottles are just swell.
Why? Because you’ll want to freshen those pearly whites before you give a presentation to your leadership team. Drinking coffee all day is fun; hitting people with your stank breath is not.
